Album Notes
SURRENDER THE HOPE is a seething hardcore act hailing from Buffalo, NY. Exploding with a live show that rivals even some of today's top selling bands (videos available on and, this 5 piece has already solidified a heavy local and regional base by converting spectators into fans. Their raucous, sometimes filthy bar-room brawl style has helped them garner great reviews and genuine respect in a saturated yet talent filled buffalo hardcore scene. While critics and fans alike have a hard time comparing them to other bands in the genre, no one will deny this band has created its own standard. Straying from the usual and now cliché hardcore shortcuts, this is a group that musically and lyrically continues to push the envelope.

Playing the north-east with such acts as the Human Abstract, the Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza, It Dies Today, the Number Twelve Looks Like You, Despised Icon and many more has helped season this band in a relatively short period of time. Capable and ready to spread the disease, SURRENDER THE HOPE is a band whose name begs to be etched onto the notebooks of high school misfits and into the minds of their concerned parents.

It's time to let go… SURRENDER THE HOPE.

Holy Guitars Batman!
I love the guitars on this CD! They are so low yet melodic. They rip your face right off. The drums are deep to and tight. The singer sound downright possessed, I love it! I have seen them live, and Holy Sh*t... bring it!

Pyramus Is Dying

Happy Holocaust
Happy Holocaust comes out punching like the close cluster of bombs dropping in an air raid. It brings to surface the adrenaline that the pilot might feel amid ground-to-air bursts. Then amid the screams in reference to burning the song finds a strange balance among chaos as if the bombs are bursting over the land. This provides the rhythm that could turn a rocking hardcore-head into a tranced shaman. Like war, the song ends suddenly and without resolution, and I am still wanting something else to really set it apart from other hardcore songs. Great listen, but I'm a hard critic.

Pyramus Is Dying

Arm the Children
From what I was able to hear the theme of war was vividly reinforced and represented through the structure of the songs. I liked the way many of the songs burst into action with the energy of a soldier after the first taste of blood and then settled into the chaotic rhythms of war. I apologize to the artist for not accessing the full length versions (poor but willing to support in the ways that I can), which is why I hold back at three stars. Hearing the resolution of these songs might have what it takes to push my review of the album to 4 stars, but I was still searching for elements that pushed this album beyond other hardcore albums of this caliber. Definitely worth a listen especially if in the mood to get the adrenaline roaring and drift into a shamanic rock-swaying trance!
